Amy Goodman says, "In the late 1950s, Haden played in Ornette Coleman’s groundbreaking quartet, which changed the shape and sound of jazz. Over the years, Haden won countless music awards and played with many other jazz greats, including John Coltrane, Don Cherry and Archie Shepp. He also emerged as one of the jazz world’s most politically outspoken musicians. During the middle of the Vietnam War, he and Carla Bley formed the Liberation Music Orchestra......

I am with Rose; while going to shows, 74-82, it WAS a point of pride that our boys/gal didn't do anything silly on stage. Watching the Woodstock film or Mont Pop Fest, other than Jimi and the Who, NO one of real accomplishment did much of anything on stage...but play and sing.
